Breakfast Cookies!!

Ok, so there are muffins, doughnuts, and all sorts of pastries loaded with sugar that we get to eat for breakfast. Why not cookies? I looked around for a recipe and found one here, but it didn’t look complete. With a few changes, they came out much better.

I’ve got 3 kids. Mornings are hectic at best. When I have to work that day too, it’s complete and total madness. This morning these cookies saved me. Easy to store, bite sized, and the perfect pairing for your morning cup of coffee or tea.

Yummy coconut breakfast cookies 

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) and 6 tbl butter
  • 3/4 cup rapadura sugar (brown sugar works)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground garam masala (can use ground cinnamon but the garam masala makes these amazing!)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup craisons
  • 1/4 c unsweetened coconut flakes
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Once that is done, add in the eggs and vanilla.
  2. In another bowl combine the coconut flour, baking soda, garam marsala, and salt. Sift out any lumps. Add to the wet ingredients. Once incorporated, add in the oats, unsweetened coconut, and craisons.
  3. Roll the cookies into a ball, roughly a tablespoon in size, then smash them down so they look like a cookie. These cookies will not melt out like regular cookies because of the coconut flour. If you want balls, keep them that shape, if you want them more like a regular cookie, smash them.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown on top. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a rack to cool.

The fun thing about these is they aren’t overly sweet and are amazingly tasty. You can also play around with what you put in them. Next time I make these, I’ll be using 1/2cup craisons and 1/2 almonds for some crunch and to up the protein content even more. Hope you enjoy!
